Do you hate bras, or are you just wearing the wrong size? According to research, 80% of women wear the wrong size bra. Imagine wearing shoes that are two sizes too big or too small! Sounds like a painful nightmare, right? Well, that’s exactly how your upper body feels when you leave your breasts hanging (or suffocated!) in a bra that’s the wrong size.
While there is no way to get the perfect size consultation at home, the bra measuring system comes pretty close! Not all bras are equal in fit (see our breast profile guide to learn why!) but, with a little measuring tape and effort, you can find your size in the comfort of your own home. A fact that is little known among our women is that, just because your bra fit you perfectly at age 16, doesn’t mean it will at 20! Things like losing or gaining weight, exercising, nursing and age can alter your bra size, making it necessary for you to refresh your bra wardrobe.
Well, let us help! Our online bra size calculator will make the process as simple as 1-2-3. Just put on a non-padded bra, grab a measuring tape and get ready to measure yourself! (Hint: And once you’re done, browse or have a look at our Losha Bra Styling Guide to help you choose what style works best for you.)
Bra Size Calculator
Step 1: Measure Your Underbust (Band Size)
Measure yourself wearing a contour or underwire bra (avoid padded or push up bras), Stand up, then relax your arms and shoulders. Breathe out. Wrap a tape measure around your chest and back, just under your breasts. It’s OK to hold it tightly - your bra is designed to stretch. Keep the tape parallel to the floor.
Step 2: Measure Your Overbust (Cup Size)
Next, take the tape and measure around your breasts and back. Again, keep the tape parallel to the floor. Let it rest gently against the fullest part of your bust. Don’t hold the tape too tightly this time. Again, enter your measurement below, in centimeters (cm).
Note: Enter your measurement above, in centimetres (cm).

How to measure your bra size?
Have you been suffering from back problems? Constant headaches? Are adults always criticizing your problematic posture? Does the phrase bra size calculator sound completely foreign to you? The problem may not be you – just your bra size! Research shows that 80% women today are wearing the wrong bra size, even though information about measuring yourself has become far more accessible about the internet. And wearing the wrong style of bra can be terrible for your health.
What most people don’t seem to know is that even if you were wearing the perfect bra size six months ago, it could be totally wrong for you now. Things like losing or gaining weight, exercising, nursing and age can massively alter your bra size, making it necessary for you to refresh your bra wardrobe.
Moreover, wash and wear means bras wear out after some time. The elasticity wears out after a while, which makes the straps and band size loser than they were before. But in Pakistan especially, getting good information in-store guidance about proper sizing and even buying the correct size can be a total nightmare! That’s why Losha was created so that women can help women find the right lingerie for them.
